CreditCardRewards.com Review

Written by Amy last month

TLDR:
A no-frills airline credit card for Southwest travelers who charge less than $10,000 a year.

Review of the Southwest Rapid Rewards® Plus Credit Card

Although the Southwest Rapid Rewards® Plus Credit Card doesn't offer any luxury perks, it is a solid low cost card for earning 2X Rapid Rewards® points on Southwest airfare, hotel and car Rental Partner purchases and 1X on everything else.  As a sign-up bonus you'll earn 50,000 points when you spend $2,000 in purchases in the 1st 3 months, , which can get you at least 1 roundtrip flight on Southwest. After the first year, you'll earn 3,000 bonus points each year after your cardmember anniversary.

If you spend more than 10,000 a year, you would benefit from the Southwest Rapid Rewards® Premier Credit Card which offers more bonus points for a $99 annual fee.


The Bottom Line
Good low cost airline card if you fly mostly in the Southwest, but because it’s a regional airline if you’re looking for other destinations you may need to supplement with another travel credit card.
